Set up at the back drop of the beautifully decked ITC Gardenia’s Mysore Hall, the ambiance was just perfect and welcoming for the Signature After Match Party.
The crowd that started setting in by 9PM, started grooving into the music of DJ Akshay and free flowing of the drinks in addition to never-ending array of finger food. The bartenders were quick in making the cocktail one asked for and there was no stopping of the crowd who loved and enjoyed the party every bit. The crowd was a mix of youngsters and the middle aged. The ladies looked elegant with their most fashionable attires and the men in their smart casuals.
The cricketers started coming in by 10:30PM and with each cricketer making an entry, the crowd lost patience to meet them, take pictures and autographs from them. Venkatesh Prasad, who shook hands with many, signed T-shirts and autograph books. Muttiah Muralidharan was in fact sweet to pose with every commoner who made a request for a picture!! VJ Gaurav Kapoor was grabbing loads of attention too from all the young ladies. Dilshan was no less and looked very smart in his blue and white striped T-shirt. Then came Sidhartha Mallya who was accompanied by a huge number of high profile RCB followers. Sreesanth, in his black T, looked good and stayed busy with other cricketers. Amongst the crowd were Monoviraj Khosla appreciating the fashion and the beauty with his drinks. Chris Gayle, who was received by other cricketers, looked cool in his funky tee. Virat Kohli was somebody I can't afford to miss mentioning here! From the time he arrived, till the party got over, his female fans were screaming out his name, dying to get better glimpse of him and get a pic shot with him. He was indeed the female crowd puller of the day (rather night)! Parthiv Patel was the last cricketer to enter and was almost lost in the crowd.
The arrival of Dr.Vijay Mallya at 11:30PM with his gang of high profile people and that resulted in a huge crowd gathering around him to greet. 10 minutes after that, the Signature Bold & Beautiful fashion show started that was exclusively designed for the Signature After Match Party by Dimuthu. The long legged femme fatales hit it off really well on the ramp. Jackie Shetty looked fab with skin colored gown. The crowd got glued to the models on the ramp and there was no stopping to it. With the 'Green' theme, it was an eco-friendly ramp show too! Chris Gayle walked on the ramp and had almost replaced the show stopper!!!
The super-hot Mischief Gals made sure to keep the crowd entertained by keeping the enthu levels high!! A large buffet spread did not fail to win the hearts of the gathering. The buffet was an array of food ranging from a variety of Indian breads with lip-smacking Dal, Paneer and Channa. Pav Bhaji with extra butter was just heavenly. Vegetable dum biryani tasted delicious with the right amount of masala and aroma. Desserts were something irresistible with yummy chocolate cake, pastries and hot and soft gulab jamoon.
All in all, it was an ecstatic Signature After Match Party with some of the best numbers played by DJ Akshay, a perfect Bold & Beautiful fashion show by Dimuthu, celebrities pulling the crowd, Mischief Gals keeping the enthu alive in addition to the free flow of drinks and delectable food! This indeed was an event that would be remembered forever!!
